  • "A great location & stunning views from deck of the lodge, well equipped & comfortable."

    Would suggest a bit more local info in the visitors pack for 1st timer to Keswick & the Lakes & info on the best way to walk into Keswick from the lodge.

  • "Absolutely loved our stay, the lodge was perfect for us."

    It had everything we could need and more. Loved the location as it was so quiet and peaceful with amazing views but just a short walk into Keswick. I think we may be back. Perfect for Harvey my dog as he could sit on the deck quite safely too.

    Glad Harvey enjoyed the decking! Property Owner

    Other Lodge on that site which was great wouldn't stay in riverdall number 14 again had no sleep any I e the bed are that hard even me granson. Said bed to hard also the fire u cart put it on your self it come on then after 10 mint turns it self on the heating you couldn't high up your selfthey and on. Could never get warm the lock on.door were put code in is terrible take ages to open.the rest wast bad Brenda Rourke

    I’m sorry that you found the beds hard. Everyone has different sleeping preferences. We stay in the lodge frequently ourselves and have no problems sleeping, and we inspect the beds regularly. The mattress is a Tempur mattress. The fire in the lounge is on a thermostat which cannot be adjusted. The lodge heaters are also controlled by thermostats. We have three common settings of 7, 18 and 22 degrees which we find cover most eventualities but you can adjust if required- the instructions are in the lodge booklet. We have looked at the lock details from your stay and can see that you entered code details correctly. The instructions tell you to wait until the bar moves across before trying to open the door. If the door isn’t firmly shut the bar cannot move. Property Owner

  • "Overall an excellent stay."

    Some absolutely fantastic views from the veranda. Makes you feel you are in the heart of the Lakes. Cleanliness was very good generally. The only thing that let it down was some food residues left on cooking utensils, cutlery, etc. This meant we felt we needed to run everything through the dishwasher before using, just to be safe. But other than that, the cleanliness was superb. Maybe if the cleaner had been paid for just 15 minutes more, they'd have had the time to sort out this one issue? The cabin had excellent facilities and was nice and warm, even during the cold and blustery storms we had. 15-minute walk into central Keswick, so fairly well situated. Note that facilities on the site were a little lacking. No recycling at all, which is pretty much unacceptable, these days in our opinion. so we ended up bringing all of our plastic, tins, and glass back home with us, as it didn't feel right to just bin it. Also, be aware that no shop or other facilities on site. If you are after a property that is comfortable, warm, well equipped, with great views, you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you for your feedback Unfortunately the site refuse is not within the control of any of the lodge owners, however commercial waste does have some sorting after collection. We do include details if the recycling centre in Keswick. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property."

    Plastic chairs outside could do with cushions as cold and uncomfortable. The knives in the kitchen were pretty blunt. Other than that, couldn’t fault it! Clean, easy access, plenty of information in the folder for those who don’t know the area too well. Perfect! Will choose you again next time

    Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of replacing some of the kitchen and dinner services so we will look at the knives. Update: Knives have now been replaced Property Owner

  • "We had a fab stay at Rivendell Lodge."

    It certainly was home from home. Very cosy on cold days with the most amazing views to Lattrigg and Skiddaw. We were sad to leave, but will definately return for another visit. Just a short walk into Keswick, and with The Pheasant pub just down the road, we had a delicious meal there. The only negative point I would make is having to vacate the property at 9:30 am. The property listing actually states 10:am. On that note we decided to pack up and leave the previous afternoon, as didn't want to rush on the morning of departure. But thankyou to the owners, this is a lovely, well equipped property, and our dog had a great time too.

  • "Well equipped cottage."

    Very good washing machine/dryer and dishwasher and excellent range of dishes, glasses etc. Loved the view from the raised decking area. Main issue was the fairly thin mattress in the main bedroom. As a result, my husband could feel the join in the base through the mattress. We did manage to overcome the problem by using some extra cushioning between the mattress and base but something to be aware of. There was also a bit of dust on the towel rail and on some of the glasses. I did have to wipe down the front of the fridge on arrival, as this had been missed. Overall, a very enjoyable holiday.

    Thank you for the review. Whilst delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay, and of course the view, we are sorry that you found the mattress not to your liking. We shall pass this on to the owners and advise that it is checked. Noting a few areas of the lodge had been overlooked by the cleaner, please accept our apologies - It is most unusual for this lodge and we would like to think a one off. That said thank you for letting us know and we shall pass this on to the cleaners. On a more positive note, we are so pleased that you otherwise had a very enjoyable holiday at Rivendell, it’s a great lodge and a fantastic location. We do hope we welcome you again soon.
